According to a report this morning from NJ.com, the reuniting of Greg Schiano and Rutgers is "imminent," according to all indications.
The report shares:
"He has not yet officially been hired to his old job, but the deal is at the 1-yard line going in ... or closer. Now the parties just need to cross the goal line."
The report adds that the university is ready to meet the significant demands Schiano laid out in their interview. Among those demands were reportedly an increased salary pool for assistants, improvements to the facilities, and possibly a football-only facility with an indoor practice space.
Schiano's appointment back in Piscataway would mark a journey that has taken some wild turns over the past few years. From defensive coordinator at Ohio State to almost landing the Tennessee job before a social media outrage threw water on the deal, to defensive coordinator for Bill Belichick's Patriots before deciding to ultimately step away to put himself in position for an opportunity at a homecoming like this (per our sources). Quite the script for sure.
Rutgers is currently one of three open Power Five jobs, along with Florida State and Arkansas. Keep track of all head coaching changes from NFL to FBS to D-III and NAIA on this page.
